The young and talented Seattle Mariners – some considerably more talented than others – are about to complete what has been a long and difficult season only to learn it’s going to be a long winter, too.

General manager Jack Zduriencik and manager Eric Wedge are assigning the kids homework.

“Jack and I talk with different individuals. It’s not everybody, but most of the young guys,” Wedge said. “ We’ve got coaches involved in some of those meetings as well.

“This is going to be arguably the most important winter that these guys are going to have,” Wedge said.  ”With all these young guys who are here and where they’re at and what they’ve experienced this year, they need to understand what they need to do physically to make sure they’re coming to spring training where they need to be and not leaving anything to chance.

“Believe you me, I’ll know when I see these guys or talk to these guys in regard to what we’ve been talking to these guys about the last two or three weeks and where they come in next spring.

    Wow, a stellar effort by Vargas tonight. Cruising through eight innings, almost effortless. And how is he re-warded? By taking him out. Wedge and Willis are showing a complete lack of respect for the man. It’s a slap in the face. “We don’t want you to be too successful” is what they are saying. Instead, they want Tattoo League to come for yet another bogus save to beef up his meaningless save stats.
